Yep; just ordered mine.

For all those that argue "but I have a great SBD" I have yet to be disappointed in an early era purchase. For virtually every show I can select, a DPs, a DLseries, a RTs, or whatever, there is NO doubt that those that have been remastered, etc., etc., are MUCH better.

Now, is this because a SINGLE "diginoise" artefact sets my anal retentive blood to boil? I dunno...

But, I will continue to buy each and every release because even the best of the best of early era shows can each be improved upon, no matter what.

I found this to be esp true with 8/6...a show I thought I would never need to buy. The commercial release so opened up new sounds I was shocked.

Anyway, I will support the releases by purchasing them, BUT for my own very SELFISH reasons...they are ALWAYS better, IMHO. I would qualify this by saying that some mid 70s DPs suck...and not just because it ain't 68. But as long as they aren't mixed to sound like that, I will buy any releases.

Cranky.

WTF?!

This is just TOO unusual!

It's like fricking Halley's Comet...

Yep, all is well, and amazingly, somehow we continue to muck about in your absence...you'd be amazed that a number of newbies have risen to the ranks of old fart, JG, and a number of troublemakes (Dire?!), have even recast themselves as contributing members of our warped society.

Hope you around for at least an hour or two?

Keep the dialogue going--get as many posts in as possible, since WTF, ASU lost in the NCAA anyhow, eh?

Great to see ya!
